I paid a measly $95, couldn't believe it.

 

$95 + 11 shipping = 106

 

(shrug)

 

Great pickup for a great price!

:applause:

 

lol I live in the Uk, so it was $30 shipping, still very happy though.

 

So you paid $125 in total. What do I win? :banana:

 

My admiration. :grin:

 

I'll take whatever I can get. :insane:

Made an unexpected local deal yesterday. This guy was selling some silver/bronze Archie comics, and happened to also have an almost-full run of Planet of the Apes magazine #2 through #22. I figured what the heck and bought them for a well-below-guide price. I haven't seen most of these before -- they're off my usual collecting radar -- but the covers are really dynamic and cool.

I'm thinking most are in the VG to FN+ range. Most have solid spines, tight at the staples, etc. Some of them have nice glossy covers, but some have noticeable wear.

 

The seller had them stacked raw in a plastic bag that was inside a box, and his story indicated they had been stored that way in a garage for at least a couple decades. The first thing I did after getting them was put them in sleeves/backings.

Those mags are chok full of great Alcala and Ploog goodness! Here is a link to my (very old) review of the series. Spoilers to those who haven't read this great series.

Its a very under rated series IMHO, I am trying to put together a HG set, the later issues are proving impossible to find HG.

Vol 1 is a slight upgrade from my existing copy, but Vol 2 is new. Both are in the best shape I've seen so far for these books.
